About

Welcome to my website!

I’m a writer of stories, plays, but mainly children’s poetry. 

My debut collection 'Where Do Wishes Go?' published with Otter-Barry Books in March 2022. My Second collection 'The Moon's Gorgonzola' is publishing with Troika Books in 2023 and my third collection is publishing in 2024 with Otter-Barry Books! I have had many poems published in anthologies with Otter-Barry Books, Troika, Macmillan, Bloomsbury, and many more fantastic publishers (Check them out in the  below buttons!)

My work doesn’t feel like work.  I love my job! Visiting schools is joyous, inspiring children to fall in love with poems and helping them to write their own. I work with children of all abilities. Children who love poetry and would love to learn a variety of techniques and poetry styles, children who have never before written a poem,  children who lack confidence in their writing or find literacy in general, hard.  My nurturing approach means that every child leaves my workshops feeling proud of themselves and with confidence.  

 

I had the honour of being asked to be a member of the Worcester Competitive Arts Festival (WCAF) committee. I am a member of Authors Abroad, Brian Moses’ Able Writing Scheme, the prestigious author agency, Authors Aloud and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

Special Needs: I work with children with special educational needs. Poetry can be a great tool for encouraging focus. In addition, I have taught children with EAL who have little or no knowledge of English, to compose a poem.
